Katy Perry will star as the title character in Melody, an animated musical feature created, directed, and produced by Jeremy Zag. Along with 3 others, Perry will also have the title of producer.

Perry plays a kind-hearted, insecure singer who must overcome the evil plans of a jealous wicked pop queen who has vowed to destroy her. All set against the backdrop of New York City.

She’s writing and performing songs with themes of self-discovery and self-belief. She told Deadline, “I am 37-year-old woman who still struggles with being insecure. I’ve come to realize that everyone is insecure, and that if you are not, I wonder if you have some negative characteristics because of that. I’m such a big fan of the animation world, and because my daughter is two years old, I am more immersed than ever before.”

She posted images online of her character… a young girl with bubblegum pink hair, sitting in a bedroom and playing guitar. No release date has been announced.
